Jim Field . Illustrator for cats, fish and the famous.

January 12, 2012

Jim Field was born in Farnborough and always wanted to create cartoons from an early age.  Studying at Hull School of Art and Design and graduating in 2002, he started his career in the animation industry by working as a director for Partizan in London.  Whilst also working as a freelance illustrator for editorial publications.

His first childrens’ book commission came about from a self promotional mail-out of five stinky fish landing on the right desk at the right time at MacMillan.  His first picture book Cats Ahoy! written by Peter Bently won the Booktrust Roald Dahl-Funny Prize in 2011 and has been nominated for the Kate Greenaway award.

Jim lives in London with his girlfriend, three bikes and a good sense of humour.

And following on from my last posting about smiling more …. I saw this on Anke Weckmann‘s site and following it through to the pics of the rabbits (pictured underneath) also made me laugh out loud, top tip Anke.

    Lovely, post. Really like the cats and the tourists, so well observed.

    Oh and the rabbits made me smile, too!

      Thanks Alison, I think we all need a smile fix every now and then.
